Purchased the bike previously owned. This carb installed on the bike . It is not fully seated in the intake boot or the air cleaner boot. The difference is split to mate up to the two. If the tank moves at all it rubs the throttle rocker in the right side of the carb and does not let it idle

Down .

Looks like a Mikuni TM 40. I just installed a new one on my xr650r. There isn't any problems with the gas tank touching the carb. But I do have the stock tank on. In the pictures, it looks like you just need to force the airbox boot on?

Now that I have the cam done . I checked out the carb installation closer. It looks like I need a longer adapter from
The air box to the carb. If I fully seat the carb to the head , I have a large gap on the intake side of the carb to the air box

Try to clamp the airbox side down onto the carburetor and then pull it over into the head side boot. That has worked for me as long as its not a large gap
